In addition to collectively benefiting from the campaign’s buy local message, members have access to multiple marketing opportunities and tools. Robust listings in the business directory allow you to tell your own story in the most effective manner, along with a direct link to your website. You are encouraged to submit articles, events, awards, recipes, and other content that helps us market your products and services. Members receive priority consideration for articles, videos, product guides, and press opportunities, and can also download marketing tools for their own use.
One of the most popular aspects of Buy Michigan Now are the events we organize and partner in. Members will receive first access to sponsorship and additional marketing opportunities at these events, along with discounts to participate. Our signature event, the Buy Michigan Now Festival draws over 30,000 people looking to learn about and buy from Michigan-based businesses. Members receive priority consideration for vendor location and utility requests.
Increasing sales is a big part of what Buy Michigan Now is all about, but it is also important to help our members reduce costs. Our Office Supply Program and other discounts are designed to help your business become more profitable. As a member, you may also OFFER discounts through Buy Michigan Now to gain new customers.
The more we all spread the message of buying local, the more our entire community benefits. That is why we have resources available for our members to download for free that include membership badges and shelf tags to highlight local products. We also provide a wealth of educational content and information, exclusively for BMN Members that can improve the way your business runs.
